Message from Michelle of Nom Nom Paleo:

Hey, Nomsters – my updated cookbook app is here, and it’s finally available for your iPhone!

This “cookbook on steroids” is a uniquely immersive culinary experience. It’s a visual feast packed with brand new recipes, as well as updated versions of classic Nom Nom Paleo dishes—all presented with my own special brand of whimsically snarky commentary. Food lovers and busy home cooks can visually follow each of my recipes from the pantry to the dining room table.

But that’s not all! For those who want to learn more about the “caveman” approach to nutrition and health, I’ve included a “Paleo 101” primer that explains why we eat whole, unprocessed, real foods (like meat, seafood, vegetables, fruits, and nuts) and avoid highly-processed and pro-inflammatory foods. You’ll also find an in-depth shopping guide, a 30-day meal planner, an interactive shopping list, and much, much more.

My hope is that this app will delight, engage, and inspire you to eat well and be well!

Pros and cons of Nom Nom Paleo app for iPhone and iPad

Nom Nom Paleo app good for

Beautiful app and super delicious recipes!! Seriously satisfying flavours and easy to follow step by step photographic instructions.
I absolutely love this app! I have been using it for a week. It has the most delicious recipes all with pictures and step-by-step instructions again with pictures. I love the 30 day meal plan. The only reason I didnt give this app a 5-star is because it doesnt allow me to upload recipes into my fitness pal app. I recommend it to everyone.
This app has amazing, bright, colourful pictures and the step-by-step instructions are so helpful. Michelle makes paleo cooking easy and fun!
This a terrific app. Very easy to navigate and is full of tasty and healthy recipes, with step by step instructions. Meal plan is great too.
Theres a reason this app has won awards: its design is above and beyond other cooking app experiences and really becomes a paragon of post-iOS 7 design. If you do end up falling in love with the included recipes like I have, youll be thankful for such a well designed daily reference. Must buy for any paleo eater or design lover.
I just bought an iPad so that I can enjoy Nom Nom on a bigger screen and still be portable. I have a wealth of information at my fingertips. The recipes are wonderful. Highly recommend

Some bad moments

So I use this app all the time. Michelle Tam is my hero...however Im unable to open a recipe since the last update. Tried on my iPhone 6plus and iPad Air ...the app opens but Im unable to search, open a recipe or anything. Fix this and its back to 5 stars.
This WAS a great app. Great recipes, great how-to, easy to use....but all the original recipes (that I paid for!!!) are gone. What happened?! Very disappointed!
I bought this app a couple years ago and it is completely non functional. I bought a new iPad Pro a month ago and have not been able to open it on the newest iOS on it since. Please update your app. This is ridiculous for the amount of money I paid.
I loved this app but for almost a year the page became static and I cant access anything. I just sent a second email to app support but no response to date. When it was working, it was wonderful to try the recipes. Frustrating!
Disappointed there isnt a Pressure Cooker / Instant Pot category. The recipe authors loves her Instant Pot and has plenty of related recipes on her website, and the only reason I bought this app was because I like the Instant Pot recipes on her website and thought I could easily access a whole bunch of Instant Pot recipes under one category in the app. Turned out I would have to search for them manually, which is quite inconvenient. Even if I were to mark all Pressure Cooker / Instant Pot recipes as favourites I would still have to search manually from time to time in order to see the newly added ones. I look forward to upgrading my rating once this problem is solved, thank you.
So I love the author and her recipes. Been using her book for quite some time now. However this app over the past month only has 4 recipes. Literally no point to the app when you only get 4 recipes. Software on the other hand is great. I only remember 1 force close. It is smooth and easy to navigate. Like I stated previously theres just no content.
